I realize that the OP was looking for an argument against God but I want to provide a slightly different view. Many people subscribe to the Primordial Soup theory (single-celled animals miraculously sprung up out of muck); but I have one (big) problem with this theory – prophesy.
How can human beings prophesize about the future if they arose from single-celled animals? I don’t see how it’s possible…and ‘yes’ I know a guy who can perform it with consistently (I don’t care whether you believe me or not, it’s true). So I’m going to argue that if we didn’t arise from single-celled animals, our origins must be from some other means – God seems to be the only reasonable answer.

Life comes from pre-existing life. There is no evidence to the contrary. Science was able to split the atom and release it's energy, I think the opposite is possible, all matter and physical life was first in the form of energy. A creative force that exists outside of time and space, made of up energy then turning it into matter, seems reasonable to me.

....I suggest this holiday season, let us look to one another rather than to the heavens. Give thanks to those around you and to those less fortunate. In my mind, every single being on this planet are gods, imagine how much this world would change if we all started treating each other as such.

The only real argument that stands against God creating the universe is the idea that the universe expands and contracts infinitely, or there are countless universes being constantly popped into existence. The problem with both these ideas is that they imply the concept of infinity, which can't exist in our 3 dimensional universe.
I personally believe that my conscious mind is all the proof I need that there is some kind of God. If everything is just random chances and accidents, there would be no way I would be here consciously experiencing my world from my body's perspective. Why am I only experience this body's experience and not someone elses'? If I am here consciously experiencing this world, why would my conscious experience end when I die?
A great book to read about this subject is Lee Strobel's "The case for a creator". It covers almost all the topics and evidence pointing to the existence of a creator. And if anyone is wondering what "solid evidence" there is, DNA is that evidence. Even in the most primitive single celled organisms, the sheer amount of information held and processed in DNA is just incredible- too incredible to be the product of chance.
My only question about God, is what is God?

the best argument is ... no one knows what god is ... so really, what god are u talking about
the god that says sex is a sin, or the god that say that when you die killing some people you will have sex with a lot of woman or what?
really, I think the question u should ask is HOW MANY GODS ARE OUT THERE
because, for what I know, there are a lot
I prefer the god that gives the women ... really! If I had to choose
